Our annual online survey, conducted between September 21 and October 22, 2018 by The Harris Poll, was designed to better understand the experience of 882 cancer patients and survivors who are either employed or unemployed but looking for work.
The full infographic is available below, but here are a few key highlights from the survey:
- One quarter of employed respondents (26%) shared their diagnosis with HR (this excludes 16% of respondents who did not have an HR department).
- 90% of employed and unemployed survivors know an employer cannot discriminate against them because of a cancer diagnosis, but 19% think an employer can require them to disclose their diagnosis before hiring them.
- 73% of cancer patients and survivors are concerned about rising out-of-pocket healthcare costs and more than half (55%) are concerned that policy changes to lifetime limits or annual caps will limit their access to healthcare.
